Could be one of two things.
1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

Sounds like Your Battery Terminals are loose, or corroded. Remove the terminals (ground or black first, then red or positive) clean them with wire brush then reconnect them to battery (positive first, then negative). Charge battery and this should solve the problem. If you have a voltmeter handy, after doing this, start it and check voltage. it should be a minimum of 13.00 vdc or higher (up to 14.50 vdc) If car is running and voltage is BELOW 13 v, then your alternator could be the problem. Hope this helps you out.

ok. the relay is under dash drivers side left of the steering column. now first check for power with key in the start position. at the heavy yellow wire at the relay and then check the purple wire if both have power then your neutral safety switch mybe at fault. check it as well. check for power at the switch bolted to transmission. the two heavy wires going to the switch will be starter in and starter out. so check for power at the two there if power goes in but nothing comes out the change the neutral safety switch.
